of the story, thanks to bill clinton, which is, "they ge me a e problem and i stopped what they were doing. now you d't want to give it 't back to the people who caused the problem." but what he is not then able to do, which i wish he would do, is to say, "and the reason it was so hard for me to do as much as i wanted, and the reon i need your help, america, going eerward, is that these people are going to fight us tooth and nail every step of the way. and starting with dealing with this fiscal cliff in wh h there's this terrible sequester tal, thoh people are holding the country hostage. i'm going to go to you, the country, and ask you to pressure your representatives, including the republicans, to make a deal, find common grounnwith us. and that's what it's going be like in the future." obama has not made a convincing. case that the way in which the non-part -- the way in which the bitter partisanship of the past would be different from the future. why wouldn't mitch mcconnell and john boehner be even more vicious toward himn the future, and ferociously so than they have been n the past? >>
of the clinton administration with, you know, a couple of bills, one that removed thehe separation b commercial and investment banks. >> glass-steagall act? >> glass-steagall. >> it took down the wall between those two? >> the last part of it. and then the second part by passing a bill that made it, essentially made derivatives out of bounds for regulation. so saying that it's the toughest is literally true. the problem is it hasn't been tough enough in where it most matters. and again, you don't really have to take my word for it. you just look what the market has done. based on the presumption of bailout, the banks get higher ratings from the credit rating agencies which means they can borrow money for less, because their debt is viewed by the credit rating agencies as being less risky. and they get these higher ratings on explicit presumption that the government will bail them out and make good on their debt. so it didn't deliver the goods where it matters the most. again, not saying that it doesn't have some good positive things for our system and for people. but it didn't deliver the most
